on dinner.

easter dinner, to be exact. i went to visit the boy this weekend and we decided to have a nice, traditional lamb dinner for easter on saturday night. i love lamb because it's so easy to make, hard to mess up, and is always tasty. the only drawback is that it can be expensive, hence why we have it on holidays. we used this awesome recipe from ina garten, a.k.a. the barefoot contessa, and loved it. i should note that we did use olive oil, and not butter. you know, a fun way to pretend it's healthier.
even though my old-school meat thermometer lied to us repeatedly, resulting in lamb that was more well-done than we would have liked, it was still awesome. oh, and those vegetables were made by the one and only - wouldn't worry about it.
seriously, his kitchen is like buckingham palace compared to my tiny nyc one. sigh...someday. paired with a bottle of wine from my fancy wine store around the corner that i only use for nice occasions, it was pretty much perfect.
and yes that's a funfetti cake in the background, or as we prefer to call it, jesus' re-birthday cake.
